As I understand it, the new build compiles the repositories in this
order so that it matches the old build. In previous mails about this
here then it was suggested that this would be re-examined in JDK 9. Once
we get JDK 9 building as modules then this issue should go away too as
code would no longer be compiled a repository as time as it does now.
